Diva Tasting: Chicken Stew…

Chicken Stew

Ingredients

1 (3 Pound) Rotisserie Chicken

3 Tablespoons Butter

1 Onion, Diced

2 Ribs Celery, Sliced Thin

2 Tablespoons All-Purpose Flour

1 Quart Chicken Broth

1 Teaspoon Sea Salt

1 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

½ Teaspoon Dried Basil

¼ Teaspoon Dried Thyme

1 Pound New Potatoes, Cut Into 1/2-Inch Dice

2 Cups Frozen Mixed Vegetables

1 ½ Cups All-Purpose Flour

Dumplings:

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

½ Teaspoon Salt

3 Tablespoons Butter

¾ Cup Milk, Or More As Needed

2 Tablespoons Dried Dill

Directions

Step 1 De-bone chicken and cut into chunks or shred. Set aside.

Step 2 Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat; cook and stir onion and celery until soft, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle in 2 tablespoons flour and whisk continuously to make a thick roux, about 2 minutes. Slowly pour in chicken broth, whisking to remove any lumps. Add salt, black pepper, basil, thyme, potatoes, and mixed vegetable. Cover and cook the stew over medium heat until vegetables are tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in chicken meat and continue to simmer.

Step 3 Meanwhile, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; cut in 3 tablespoons butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk and dill (DO NOT over mix to prevent tough dumplings.) Drop rounded tablespoonfuls of dough into the simmering stew. Cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Cover and cook until the dumplings are tender, 8 to 10 minutes more. Serves 8
